Twickenham Stadium transport notice

For the 2015 QBE Internationals, England v France (15 August) and England v Ireland (5 September), the RFU and England Rugby 2015 are working with TfL and Richmond Council to trial some of the additional transport measures that will be put in place for the ten matches at Twickenham Stadium during Rugby World Cup 2015.

There will be new and additional ways for fans to get to and from Twickenham Stadium such as park-and-ride facilities from Kempton Park and shuttle buses back into central London after these two RFU matches.

The park and ride from Kempton Park will be available to book in early July. Organisers of coach travel to either match are advised to contact with their name, address and contact number for further information.

Match day contacts

On a match day, if your query requires a police response then please dial 101 or in an emergency always dial 999.

Otherwise, for the RFU or England Rugby 2015, you can contact the regular Twickenham match day phone on 07894 814180. Please note this phone is only in use on match days.
